Iran's President while stressing on boosting bilateral ties, told his Egyptian counterpart that there was no obstacle in developing the relations between the two countries.

Iran PressWest Asia: Meeting with Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on the sideline of the summit on Gaza held on Saturday, Iran's President said that Egypt is generally expected to open the Rafah crossing so that international aid could enter Gaza. 

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi arrived in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia on Saturday for a summit on Gaza.

Raisi said: "It is clear to all that the US and the Zionist regime are hindering the opening of the Rafah crossing which is assigned for providing aid to the oppressed and defenseless people of Gaza, but these obstacles must be overcome."

He referred to the Peace Summit held recently in Cairo and described it as a positive initiative but it failed to fruit because of the West's improvision of obstacles: 

The Cairo peace meeting could be a turning point in ending the Zionists' massacre of defenseless and innocent women and children in Gaza. However, the Western countries supporting the Zionist regime did not allow the UN Security Council and other international organizations to take effective measures to stop these crimes, they also prevented the fruitfulness of this meeting."

The Egyptian President al-Sisi, for his part, said that the political will of his country is to make real relations with the Islamic Republic and that he has assigned the relevant ministers to pursue deep relations between the two countries. 219
